Description

"Exactly the sort of work [written] for ordinary Christians who want to know their Bible better," said D.A. Carson of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

John wrote his Gospel so "that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that, believing, you may have life in his name." For nearly 2,000 years the Gospel's "straight, unequivocal words about sin and salvation somehow go home," Bruce quotes, "and carry conviction to the most abandoned, while its direct invitation wins a response that nothing else does."

This outstanding commentary is easy to read, informative, and intended for the general reader interested in serious Bible study. The translation used is Bruce's own. He sets passages in their historical and cultural context, compares them with the other three Gospel accounts, and opens the meaning of the verses. The book has won such praises as "scholarly, concise, and practical"; "the best overall commentary on the Gospel of John"; and "clear-headed and consistently informative." Walter Elwell, former professor of Bible and Theology at Wheaton College, said Professor Bruce's commentary "draws out the rich depths of this marvelous Gospel."

About the Author(s)

Frederick Fyvie Bruce (1910-1990) was born in Scotland, the son of a Christian Brethren (Plymouth Brethren) preacher. He studied at the University of Aberdeen (where he met his future wife, Betty), Cambridge, and the University of Vienna. He taught at the universities of Edinburgh (where he and Betty married) and Leeds before becoming department head at the University of Sheffield and later professor at the University of Manchester.

His significance, however, cannot be found in a list of his academic positions or his amazing output from popular articles to scholarly commentaries. His significance is that "at a time when both tasks seemed impossible, he persuaded evangelicals to think differently about scholarship, and scholars to think differently about evangelicalism," said Peter Oakes of the University of Manchester.

F.F. Bruce let the Bible speak freely and did not make it fit a particular system of theology. He was humble and gentle, and he respected those with whom he disagreed. He was a superb scholar, and his scholarship had the purpose of helping people encounter Jesus Christ.

His colleague I. Howard Marshall summarized Professor Bruce’s career, "[He] will obviously be remembered first of all for his highly distinguished academic career as a university teacher and a prolific writer who did more than anybody else in this century to develop and encourage conservative evangelical scholarship. Possessed of outstanding intellectual ability, a phenomenal memory, and encyclopedic knowledge, a colossal capacity for work, and a limpid style, he produced a remarkable output of books and essays which will continue to be read for years to come, and he trained directly or indirectly many younger scholars now working in all parts of the world."

To which J.I. Packer adds, "No Christian was ever more free of narrow bigotry, prejudice and eccentricity in the views he held and the way he held them; no man did more to demonstrate how evangelical faith and total academic integrity may walk hand in hand."
